Guided tour with Baroque music concert
Every Saturday at 11:00am, an enthralling live Baroque music performance in collaboration with Roma Opera Omnia.
The art masterpieces are put into sharp relief by the scintillating music of the 17th century. The gallery once more gives life to the notes of Frescobaldi, Monteverdi, Falconieri and other great composers, many of who were active in baroque Rome. The performances are accurate early music representations, with period instruments and practices. Voice, baroque guitar, baroque transverse flute, percussion, and lutes are the protagonists.
The atmosphere of these Saturday mornings is absolutely unique for the visitors who take part in the “Sounds and vision of Caravaggio” itinerary. The itinerary is dedicated to this great artist as this year marks the fourth centenary of his death (1610-2010), and some of his fundamental works are housed in this gallery.
The tour, conducted by an art historian, is interspersed with performances in the various rooms, (Poussino Room, the Ballroom, Quadrilatero, the Aldobrandini Room) creating a crescendo of emotions that reaches its grand finale with a concert in the stupendous Throne Room (Sala del Trono).
